Buy Or Sell: Brian Dozier & Melky Cabrera
It’s only the third hump day of the season, and I’ve already seen some ridiculous transactions, whether it’s in the form of adds, drops or trades. Paying $26 FAAB for Francisco Rodriguez? Really? Come on man. Writing a “Buy or Sell” article this early is just asking for trouble, but
Digging For Diamonds: Four To Watch
I’m taking a break from #TDGX this week to briefly discuss four minor-leagues names I’m particularly higher on than the majority — I see each of these players making significant strides and rising on prospect lists next winter. The first is a third baseman who is buried but not out, the second and
Alex’s Eleven Bold Predictions for 2014
It’s my first time publishing bold predictions at The Dynasty Guru, but it’s my third time doing it for the Internet. My bold predictions range from “not very bold” to “stupid Cubs prediction” to “ludicrous speed,” so don’t take all of these bolded words to the bank. 1. Anthony Rizzo leads the NL Central in
#TDGX Recap — Team Kantecki’s Second Ten
With the #TDGX draft officially in the books, today I march on with picks from Rounds 11-20. My selections were all still healthy by the time I completed Round 20, so I was still riding the high of stealing my boy and No. 2 starter, Kris Medlen, two rounds earlier.
#TDGX Recap — Team Kantecki’s First 10
By now, you are well aware that my TDG mates and I have been participating in an intense 40-round, first-year dynasty league draft called The Dynasty Guru Experts League. We’re already 34 rounds deep and the pickings are slim — we’ve recently entered the part of the draft where the
Rankings Counterpoint: Buy Low On Sonny Gray While You Still Can!
On Monday, fellow colleague Nick Doran introduced a “Rankings Counterpoint” series at TDG, imploring you to sell high on the Rays’ Matt Moore. In piggyback fashion, I’m here to tell you to do the opposite with the Athletics’ Sonny Gray, whom the TDG staff collectively ranked 35th among starting pitchers.
Anthony Rizzo Had A Bad 2013
Entering the 2013 season, the Cubs’ Anthony Rizzo was perhaps the most hyped first baseman in all of (fantasy) baseball. Don’t believe me? Click here, here, or here. I, too, was guilty of piling on the hype after he posted a .285/.342/.463 slash line with 15 home runs in 368
Shuffling the Deck: Ex-Diamondbacks
After trading away a potential superstar entering his prime last offseason (Justin Upton), Diamondbacks general manager Kevin Towers released his sequel to Winning the Offseason: The Totally Bonkers’ Way, with a couple of winter trades that make you go, “Hmm.” And, as a fantasy baseball enthusiast, it’s a pair of
Starlin Castro Hits Rock Bottom
Starlin Castro had a down year. A really down year. Fantasy Pros’ No. 3 shortstop — and No. 36 player overall — in the 2013 preseason rankings was simply abysmal, slashing .245/.284/.347 with 10 home runs, 59 runs, 44 RBIs and nine steals in 705 plate appearances. The 23-year-old regressed in every major
Who Needs The Winter Meetings?
With the Winter Meetings a little less than a week away (Dec. 9-12), baseball’s hot stove wasted no time cranking up the heat; numerous free-agent deals of the big and small variety have already been agreed upon, and a trade no one saw coming–possibly including one of the two teams
